You'll probably need to use DEVFS to get booted. I can't boot -current
from ahc using a standard /dev/ (or couldn't around the time DEVFS switched
from being default disabled, to default enabled, so I've been running DEVFS
ever since). This from either a 2940UW, or from dual onboard 7895's. So
if you can get it installed, try building a new kernel with DEVFS enabled.

I can't run SMP with ahc either, the machine locks up and I get messages
about interrupts being off for too long (it was a while ago, but, I try
an SMP build every month or so, and it still locks up (don't get to see the
messages in X though)).

Somtimes I do get more than 2-3 mins of uptime before it locks, and I can see
that /dev/smb0 is no longer 'configured' (lmmon et. al. stop working).

So if you do get it booted, be prepared for some torrid times d8)
